How protect several sheets from modification in Excel 2010


there was an option in Excel 2003/Word 2003 to protect the file from modification with a password. On excel 2010, this options seems to be replaced by protect this sheet with password. The problem is, when we do have 50 sheets, I can't go through 50 and put that security on. Is it any way to set it up quickly? I mean by that removing and putting it back quicky? even through a macro?

In Excel 2010 you can click File > Save As > Tools button > General Options > Password to modify

With this password you can protect the whole workbook from being changed unless the user supplies the password. It is still possible to use the "Save As" command to create a copy of the workbook, though.
